What’s the best way to treat jowls?
When it comes to aging, prevention is always the best method of treatment. At Glo Med Spa & Wellness, we believe in a comprehensive and preventative approach. A healthy lifestyle and daily sunscreen use are imperative to maintain youthful skin. Habits such as smoking, tanning, excessive alcohol consumption, and not staying hydrated will cause premature aging and jowl formation. It’s never too late to make better lifestyle choices.
For those with early stages of jowl formation, skin tightening treatments or PRP can provide great results. Nanofractional RF skin resurfacing is a safe and gentle alternative to traditional laser resurfacing. Not only does it help tighten the skin by stimulating collagen, but it also helps with acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation issues and large pores.
PRP treatment (which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma) is a new technique that can help with many issues including jowl formation. PRP combined with microneedling has been shown to cause the release of additional growth factors which stimulate the treated area to produce collagen and other components of skin. This results in a tightening and overall youthful glow to the skin. For those with moderate jowls, getting rid of those jowls and getting great results can often be achieved by a multi-step approach.
Injecting dermal filler such as Voluma or Radiesse in the cheeks and cheekbones re-establishes some of the lost support structure of the face and lifts the sagging tissue. Injection of fillers to the area just in front of the droopy jowl can also contour and redefine the jaw line. When combined with any of the treatments listed above, this can take years off the face.
For jowls that contain fat, we have found that strategically placed Kybella injections also work to reduce the fat and tighten the skin. Kybella does entail about a week of swelling, but the results are well worth it!
What to expect from your jowl treatment?
At Glo Med Spa & Wellness Austin, our team of experts offer consultations for anyone concerned with jowls. During the consultation, your care team will thoroughly examine your face and determine which treatment is best for you.
Results will vary and depend on the procedure and severity of jowls. Most modern laser treatments require minimal downtime and significant improvement is often noticed within a couple months as new collagen forms in the skin.
